Couples Therapy

Couples therapy, also known as marriage or relationship counseling, is a form of psychotherapy designed to help couples address and resolve conflicts within their relationship, improve communication, and strengthen their emotional connection. It aims to enhance the quality of the partnership, rebuild trust, and navigate challenging issues such as conflicts, communication breakdowns, and emotional disconnection. Several well-established approaches are commonly used in couples therapy, including the Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and the Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT).

  • Gottman Method: Developed by Dr. John and Dr. Julie Gottman, this method focuses on strengthening the couple’s friendship, managing conflicts, and creating shared meaning within the relationship. It is known for its extensive research and evidence-based strategies.
  • Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT): EFT, developed by Dr. Sue Johnson, concentrates on identifying and transforming negative emotional patterns within the relationship, helping couples connect at a deeper level and develop secure attachments.
  • PACT (Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy): Created by Dr. Stan Tatkin, PACT examines how partners engage with each other on a neurobiological level and emphasizes attachment, communication, and building a secure and fulfilling connection.

Who Can Benefit:

Couples therapy can benefit any couple facing relationship challenges, regardless of the nature or severity of the issues. Couples in the early stages of their relationship can use it to establish a strong foundation, while those struggling with long-standing problems or crises, such as infidelity or loss of connection, can also find help.
